Saving Moses (R) Hunger Strike Raises Funds to Feed At Risk Babies and Toddlers

An ongoing fundraising project that was started December, 2018, seeks to raise funds to help malnourished babies and toddlers in the Congo and Angola.

Shallowater, United States - May 16, 2019 /PressCable/ —

TipsforTrips is releasing information about Saving Moses(R), a global humanitarian organization that helps babies and toddlers around the world where the need is most urgent and the care is least available.

While many travelers explore the world for business and to expand their horizons, there are also groups that travel for the purpose of doing charitable missions. Saving Moses(R) is one of those groups.

The name goes back to Moses, who was saved out of the Nile River by Pharaoh’s daughter. He was a three month old baby at the time. That age is similar to the ages of the children with which the current Saving Moses(R) organization works. Moses went on to become a great leader who freed a slave people and later received a body of law that has been part of foundation of law for western civilization.

Saving Moses(R) runs malnutrition clinics in the Congo and Angola. The doctors who have been there for ten and twenty years have never seen so many babies and toddlers in such dire conditions. That situation has led to the current Saving Moses(R) Hunger Strike, a fundraising effort, which began in the Christmas season, 2018, and which is continuing to raise funds to counter the great need.

A video of some history of the region plus information about the organization’s work is available here.

One of the young boys helped by Saving Moses(R) had this to say. “When I was a baby I almost died. That is pretty normal where I am from. Malnutrition is a big problem in the world. It kills a lot of baby and toddlers. But not me. A Saving Moses(R) hero saved my life. You can be a Saving Moses(R) hero for one of my friends.”

At the time of this writing, $38 feeds a baby for an entire month. While any gift is helpful, what they are hoping for is to find consistent partners who month after month who will commit to helping a child or children on a regular monthly basis. This is an opportunity for those groups that are looking for a project that makes a real difference in the world. More information is available at the website.

Research on children's health risks in doubt over EPA funds

May 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — Long-running research projects credited with pivotal discoveries about the harm that pesticides, air pollution and other hazards pose to children are in jeopardy or shutting down because the Environmental Protection Agency will not commit to their continued funding, researchers say. The projects being targeted make up a more than $300 million, federally funded program that over the past two decades has exposed dangers to fetuses and children. Those findings have often led to increased pressure on the EPA for tighter regulations. Children's health researchers and environmental groups accuse the EPA of trying to squelch scientific studies that the...

Sea dragon exhibit dazzles visitors at California aquarium

May 23, 2019

LA JOLLA, California — At first glance, it looks like a branch of kelp, but then an eye moves among its leafy appendages, and ridges of tiny, translucent fins start to flutter, sending the creature gliding through the water like something from a fairy tale. A Southern California aquarium has built what is believed to be one of the world's largest habitats for the surreal sea dragons, whose native populations off Australia are threatened by pollution, warming oceans and the illegal pet and alternative medicine trades. The Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California...

Vaccine rates rise on long-wary 'hippie' island near Seattle

May 23, 2019

VASHON ISLAND, Wash. — Sarah Day is a school nurse with "street cred" when it comes to the polarizing issue of vaccines on an idyllic island in Washington state known for its rural beauty, counterculture lifestyle and low immunization rates. Since she began communal living on Vashon Island more than 20 years ago, the registered nurse has been advocating for getting kids their shots against a loud contingent of anti-vaccine parents in the close-knit community of about 11,000 that's accessible only by ferry, a serene 20-minute ride from Seattle. And it may now be working, thanks to a "perfect storm"...

Jay Inslee touts $9 trillion climate plan as economic boom

May 23, 2019

Democratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee is pitching a $9 trillion-plus climate action plan that he touts as an economic renaissance and scientific necessity, putting the Washington governor at the forefront of White House hopefuls pushing for sweeping action to combat the causes and effects of a warming planet. Inslee compares his "Evergreen Economy" plan, which combines public and private spending, to President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, the mobilization of the U.S. manufacturing base during World War II and the 1960s NASA mission to reach the moon. "We didn't go to the moon because it was easy, but because it was...

NTSB: Autopilot was in use before Tesla hit semitrailer

May 23, 2019

DETROIT — A Tesla Model S involved in a fatal crash with a semitrailer in Florida March 1 was operating on the company's semi-autonomous Autopilot system, federal investigators have determined. The car drove beneath the trailer, killing the driver, in a crash that is strikingly similar to one that happened on the other side of Florida in 2016 that also involved use of Autopilot. In both cases, neither the driver nor the Autopilot system stopped for the trailers, and the roofs of the cars were sheared off. The crash, which remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and...
